WIN A £50 GADGET VOUCHER!
ARE you making the most of your spare time?
After spending all day rushing around trying to get everything done, most people want to get home and relax – but what really is relaxation in modern society?
Research from Nationwide has revealed that a large proportion of us (89%) think that modern technology has made our lives easier. But over half of those (59%) don’t feel like they have any more free time.
This could be because almost a fifth of us admit to spending over FIVE HOURS a day using technology outside of work, while 21% say they spend three to four hours a day.
The most popular digital items we use are laptops or computers (82%), smartphones (32%) and tablets (28%).
Technology has sped up our household tasks. We can control our central heating, lights and fridge from our smartphones – as well as doing our online banking, tax and insurance.
Despite all of this, it looks like we aren’t using that ‘free time’ as well as we could be. In fact, one in ten of us admit to using more than one item of technology at the same time – with 41% of those saying they do so most of the time.
To help you switch off, Nationwide is offering one lucky winner a £50 Love2Shop voucher, which can be used for some retail therapy AND restaurants and attractions across the UK.
